Still planning to go with Nicks cable and NAS style console. Im not sure the linkage will work but had the disco console already and the g8 shifter was cheap so thought id mock it up.

Can anyone tell me the LR part number for this? Don't want to drop $120, but do want to make sure I pickup the correct part.

They are pretty pricey if you buy one new online ~ $120 so I opted to go to the local pull and pay and got one for $9.

Here is a picture for future reference (lifted from Ashcroft where they sell for 60 GBP).

Question for you Nick. Are the 4 holes in your Adapter in the same location as the automatic Discovery transmission? From looking at both it seems so but just wondering if you kept the exact same location.

Here is another console option featured in this months LRO magazine. Finally.. I might go this route instead of the ashcroft NAS console. Let me know if anyone else is interested and maybe we can do a group buy .

P38 adapter you say? I was under the impression that the finicky electronics of a P38 rendered such engine swaps as over-complicated and not really worth it...

I am very interested in that. Where will you be posting the information about the P38 escapades?

No room for a shroud. Just clears the water pump pulley.
Umm.... looked back & found the pic you posted a while ago, is tight isn't it & there the slimline fans too. How much room is behind the engine, will it stand the engine mounts being moved back 1.5" to allow a shroud & the medium duty fans to be used ?

the fans are actually a medium profile not slim line.

Must have clicked the wrong linky.... umm, still gonna be real close with the Alisport rad I have, the shroud is ~3/4" thick. An extra inch back on the engine would fix it though.

You don't want to run a shroud with these fans. You will ram air more flow than these fans will take. Leave the area around the fans open.

Umm... rad already has the shroud on it & my truck will spend 99% of it's time crawling round the bush, It'll see very little road use.

I could use the mounting bosses that are welded onto the rad to make an open support frame that'll hold the fans close to the core.

Would still like to keep the option of using a shroud open so think I'll move the engine back an inch just in case.... unless that'll foul the bulkhead ?

Assuming its the same as the Holden version, the top bezel floats by about 15mm. This means that your trim plate needs to include 4 studs to fix the top bezel at the correct height and cover the excess hole in the defender tunnel. The linkage to the gearbox is a simple rod (mine came with the gearbox) and it all looks factory I will write up what I have been doing with mine on my build thread when I sort out a few little details. I also need to finish the cad drawing so the cover plate can be profiled... Total cost next to nothing if you get the shifter with your box

Nick, do you have a price list and/or BOM of everything needed? Will these fit 109's fitted with the original 2.25 or is this for Defenders only (i.e. would a Defender LT230 bolt up?). I realize that there would need to be axle upgrades as well, but this would get one step closer to being able to drive on the highway (and a easier path to A/C). A 109 NA Diesel can only move but so fast...

One step closer? Its a giant leap! From 55hp to 350hp... 7x power upgrade!

My understanding is that Nick's kit is designed to only work with the LT230. Advance Adapters makes an adapter that would probably work between the 6 speed auto and the Series tbox. Call Advance and ask for Matt Jackson

Was watching the video's of the Icon 90 & 110, both appear to be using the 2010 Camero / LS3 exhaust manifolds on the E-rod engines.... have they been tried ?

Look to be a snug fit but there cheapish on Ebay
